Old and new sit side by side in Yerevan, showing the country's capital to be a city on the move, but also proud of its history and traditions.
Take a break from the city and head to Caucasus Mountains and Kari Lake. Appreciate the collections at Matenadaran - The Museum of Ancient Manuscripts and History Museum of Armenia. Change things up with these side-trips from Yerevan: Garni (Garni Gorge, Garni Temple, & more), The Monastery of Geghard (in Geghard) and Khor Virap (in Lusarat). There's still lots to do: hunt for treasures at Vernissage Market, browse the different shops at Dalma Garden Mall, take in the architecture and atmosphere at The Churches of Echmiatsin and the Archaeological Site of Zvartnots, and see the interesting displays at Parajanov Museum.

An alpine haven resting in a plush evergreen national park, Dilijan has made a name for itself as the "Armenian Switzerland." A much-loved spa town rich in culture and history, uncover the majestic 10th century monasteries, undisturbed scenic vistas, and hiking trails through undulating forest.
Visiting Dilijan National Park and Lake Sevan will get you outdoors. Odzun Church and Lori-Pambak Geological Museum of Vanadzor are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Venture out of the city with trips to Noratus Cemetery (in Noratus), Monastery Sevanavank (in Sevan) and Hayravank Monastery (in Hayravank). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Haghartsin Monastery, make a trip to Sharambeyan Street, appreciate the history behind Monument to the Heroes of the Film Mimino, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Matosavank Monastery.

To see reviews, maps, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Dilijan trip builder .
